You will find a nice balance between student centered constructivist learning and text dependent work. I generally focus on helping students create meaning out of text by habitually using evidence to support thinking. Keeping in mind that the text remains the vehicle, the objectives are usually a combination of skill building and developing depth of meaning.

I have been teaching in a suburb of New Haven County, CT for 11 years. I teach mainly 9th and 11th grade, all levels, including AP. My work is based on curriculum writing aligned with the Common Core. Much of my work focuses on skill sets such as: text analysis, depth of understanding, and close reading. Works for the higher grades may be more thematically driven. Feel free to ask a question! Thanks, Melissa
